    Golden Age Milanista got a reaction from pake in Milan 2021-2022, Pizzaa herkkusienillä ja uusilla mausteilla   
    Lähden perkaamaan eilistä pelityylien pohjalta. Takavuosina saatoin olla sitä mieltä, että Atalantan aktiivinen pelityyli ei sovi Milanille. Ainakin se ajatus jotenkin lohdutti, kun tuli kuokkaan joku 5-0. Nykyään olen siitä eri mieltä, koska Milanille (ja monelle muullekin joukkueelle) tuottaa harmaita hiuksia just ne bussijoukkueet. Tässä kevättalvella olemme itkeneet monta kerta niitä jälkimmäisiä pelejä.
    Eilisen pelin eka puoliaika oli sitten kuitenkin jotenkin vaikeaa ja hermostunutta. Milan oli askeleen aktiivisempi ja halukkaampi voittamaan ottelun, mutta Atalanta onnistui luomaan vaarallisempia maalipaikkoja. Tauolle silti mentiin 0-0, eikä se missään tapauksessa ollut väärä tulos.
    Tauolta astui vähän parempi Milan ja kun Leao sai pystysyötön, niin sitä tilaisuutta vikkelläkinttuinen, vahva ja taitava portgalilainen ei jättänyt käyttämättä. Ja kun Milan sai pallon maaliin, niin gorilla joukkueen selästä tippui ja maalista kulminaatiopiste. Kun Theo teki perään varmaan kauden kauneimman osuman, niin peli oli naputeltu. Koskaan Atalanta ei saanut enää kunnon takaa-ajoa käyntiin ja Milan otti ansaitun voiton. Piste.

    Pelin tilastot.

    Eilen ihan jokaisen pelaajan voisi valita MotM:ksi. Valitsen silti Leaon, joka teki tärkeän vapauttavan voittomaalin.  
    Tässä La Gazzetta dello Sportin arviot:

    Ja tässä SempreMilanin arviot:


    Piolin kommentit:
    “I had to salute the fans, it was our last home game of the season, they’ve been inspiring us with their passion for a year, now we’ve got another week and mustn’t change anything, we retain the usual concentration and calm.” 
    “Atalanta are a very strong team and created a lot of problems, but we did very well in defence and allowed them very few scoring opportunities. We also did well trying to find the solution to create those spaces, players going back and forth, wide and closer to the centre.
    “All the previous games taught us that we have what it takes in terms of determination, belief and courage. Those comeback wins over Lazio and Verona gave us more belief, that takes away some of the anxiety.
    “The lads know we have strengths and weaknesses, we must try to make the most of our strengths.”
    Pioli has never won the Serie A title before, so how does he feel on the verge of achieving the first Scudetto of his career, as well as Milan’s first in well over a decade?
    “In all honesty, the last few weeks have been very normal, because I see the attitude of my players, they are smiling, joking, determined and focused when they arrive at the training ground every day. I don’t need to worry, because I see that focus.
    “We had 10,000 fans waiting for us as we drove through on the bus, that obviously fired everyone up. Now I expect another week like this.”
    Meanwhile, Pioli revealed he used a legendary Milan supporter to get the players concentrated.
    “I showed the lads an interview with Kobe Bryant, who said at 2-0 up in the NBA Play-Offs, the job is not done. We’re not done. We need to maintain that calm and concentration that can in the end prove decisive.
    “When we took charge at Milan, the team had completely different tactical ideals and concepts, so we had to change everything. Now the good thing is that the players enjoy making the most of our strengths and preparing tactically, being able to adjust also to limit our opponents.”
    Finally, the coach was asked if he’d prefer to win the Scudetto a week in advance without playing or earn it on the field next weekend?
    “What do you think?!”

    Huomenna klo 19.00 Suomen aikaa Lombardian toisen kaupungin Bergamon ylpeys Atalanta saapuu San Sirolle ja yrittää ryövätä Milanin scudettojahdin arvokkaita pisteitä.
    Atalanta on perinteinen pääsarjaseura ja pelaa nyt 61. kautta Serie A:ssa. Yhtään scudettoa joukkueella ei ole ja ainoa Coppan voittokin melkein 60 vuoden takaa kaudelta 1962–1963. Mutta Atalanta on ollut viime vuosina yksi Serie A:n parhaita joukkueita. Viime kaudella Atalanta oli sarjan 3. ja keräsi 38:sta pelistä 78 pistettä. Se oli vain pisteen vähemmän kuin Milan, joka oli sarjan 2. 
    Tämä kausi bergamolaisilta ei ole mennyt ihan niin hyvin. Tällä hetkellä Atalanta on sarjan 8. ja on kerännyt 36:sta pelistä 59 pistettä. Samalla Atalanta käy omaa kuumaa taistoaan viimeisistä europaikoista. Siinä on mukana Lazio 52 pisteellä sekä tasapisteissä Atalantan kanssa Roma Ja Fiorentina 59 pisteellä.
    Milan on sarjassa eka ja on kerännyt nyt 36:n pelin jälkeen 80 pistettä. Myös vireessä Milan on Atalantaa parempi. Milanilla on 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 4 voittoa ja 1 tasuri, Atalantalla on vastaavasti 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 2 voittoa, 2 tasuria ja 1 tappio.
     
    Piolin kommentit:

    AC Milan V Atalanta like Italy v Spain in the Euros
    "We’ve essentially been playing knockout matches since Lazio v AC Milan, with these games weighing heavily on the league table. We’ve overcome some difficult obstacles, and tomorrow there will be another one against a team that will force us to play our best football possible."
    Pre-match emotions
    "Playing in front of a full stadium will only makes us more fired up and give us more energy. In the past few days, the team have been calm and attentive. I’m certain that the players currently feel like I do right now: they’re focused and motivated, and we’ll board the bus to San Siro with positive energy."
    Previous encounters with Atalanta
    "I’m convinced that the humiliating defeat we suffered was needed, but I don’t think it’s about ending a cycle tomorrow: it’s just a vital match that precedes another one. We mustn’t change our mentality of approaching games with our ideas and principles. Compared to the reverse fixture, I think they’ll do different things tomorrow. We don’t know who will play and how they will line up on the pitch. We are, however, aware of how they approach things tactically and the quality they possess. Tomorrow, two organised teams will come up against each other and the intensity displayed could make the difference."
    The right attitude   
    "We need to be self-aware in our approach to the match; we’ve been very good so far, but we also need to be very good from tomorrow until the end. We mustn’t think beyond 17:59 CEST tomorrow evening and instead only focus on the game. The result will determine what comes next."
    This week’s build-up
    "It might sound strange to you, but I’ve only noticed a really small amount of extra focus. In terms of their behaviour and attitude, the players have been the same as always. There hasn’t been a need for me to intervene in a particular manner."
    Ibra, Rebić and Tonali
    "I hope it isn’t Zlatan’s last game at San Siro; he’s a champion in every respect, and I have immense respect for him. He has the intelligence and maturity to decide what is best going forward. Ante possesses really important qualities and has overcome various problems; he’s feeling great and will play a valuable role for us. Just like all his teammates, Sandro has been attentive and calm this week. He’s good at getting forward and is full of running, which is a characteristic that needs to be exploited both in and out of possession."
    Set-pieces
    "We can do better. We’ve tried out different ideas, and I hope things go better in this regard tomorrow."
    The journey so far
    "We’ve gone through many experiences and various situations, and this has allowed us to reach a high level. Tomorrow is the moment to reap what we’ve sown."
     
    A.C. Milan - Atalanta B.C.
     
    Kumpikaan joukkue ei ole vielä julkaissut miehistöään.

    La Gazzetta dello Sportin ennakoimat avauskokoonpanot:

    Tässä on seuraava iso mahdollinen kompastuskivi Milanin scudettojahdissa. Atalanta on parempi joukkue, mitä tämän hetken sarjataulukko näyttää. Ja Atalantalla on yhä mahdollisuus Eurooppaliigaan ja siten pelattavaa.
    Silti Whoscored.com ehdottaa Milanin 1-0 kotivoittoa. Freesupertips.com taas ehdottelee Milanin 2-1 kotivoittoa, mutta Footballpredictions.com uskoo sen sijaa 1-1 tasuriin. No ei se tasuri vielä romuta scudettohaaveita, mutta menee liian jännäksi viimeiselle kierrokselle..

    Katselin eilen ekan jakson ennen nukkumattia ja ja komppaan teitä täysin kommenteissa.
    Tartun silti tähän.
    Itsekin on tullut manattua Balkanin poika alimpaan helvettiin suunnilleen yhtä monta kertaa kuin se on kentällä käynyt. Voisin sanoa nyt, että silti kaveri on yksi joukkueen tärkeimpiä pelaajia, sillä kaveri on mainio rotaatiopelaaja. Alkuaikojen jälkeen Krunicista on tullut pelaaja, jonka voi heittää kentälle monelle pelipaikalle ja tietää mitä saa, eli ei mitään erityistä. Niitä kavereita tarvitaan menestyvässä joukkueessa, jotka jaksaa istua penkillä ja kun peliaikaa tulee, niin hoitaa pyyteetömästi tonttinsa. Moni ns. hyvä pelaaja ei siihen pysty.
    No joo ja sitten johonkin muuhun:

    Piolin kommentit:
    “I am in love with my players, because I see the effort they put in every day, I know the journey we’ve been on. There’s another very tough one coming up, so we’re satisfied yes, but already need to find concentration for the next.” 
    This allows the Rossoneri to retain their two-point lead at the top of the table over Inter, and is their 10th victory of the season coming back from a trailing situation.
    “Courage and belief come from your experience and your performances. For example, not taking the lead after 25 minutes, we didn’t feel anxious, because we knew that we were playing well and kept that spirit going to the end.
    “This squad has step by step climbed the ladder, we’ve got to keep this concentration, determination and belief going for the final two games.”
    Theo Hernandez was cutting inside more than usual, is that to counter Verona’s three-man defence and could it be used again with Atalanta next week?
    “I think we played one of our best performances for 70-80 minutes against Atalanta last time, but they are one of the best squads in the league. They have a similar tactical approach to Verona, so it’s important to find the right characteristics within our squad to neutralise those strengths.”
    Tonali had the best performance of his career, scoring two goals and having a third chalked offside, all on his 22nd birthday.
    “He is young, but so strong. I said after two days of pre-season training, he was completely different to last term. These are young lads, many of us are experiencing this level for the first time and doing it in the right way, but we haven’t achieved anything yet.
    “When coaches say it takes time to build a team, we also mean just getting to know our players and finding those characteristics that can be used. When we have two midfielders, we can attack more down the wings, whereas like this we can allow Tonali to surge forward and use the way he times those runs.
    “The first day, I asked Sandro what his ideal position was, he said ‘people compare me to Andrea Pirlo, but I consider myself more of a Gennaro Gattuso.’ I think if we add in Daniele De Rossi to that mix, that completes him.”
    Milan take on Atalanta next and this is a special fixture for Pioli and the Rossoneri.
    “We are in the final stages. I think this Milan was born during the horrible, humiliating 5-0 defeat to Atalanta. That was when we realised what was needed to develop this team. It was one of the most negative moments of my career, but also one of the most valuable.”
    Pelin highlightsit:
    Seuraavaksi vastassa Atalanta San Sirolla. Ei tahdo edes malttaa odottaa sitä, vaikka vaikeaa tulee olemaan. Tässä on scudetto yhtä aikaa pirun lähellä ja pirun kaukana..

    Milan pelaa huomenna klo 21.45 Suomen aikaa Veronan historiallisessa kaupungissa kaupungin toista futisylpeyttä vastaan, elli Hellas Veronaa vastaan. Se on se suurempi ja suositumpi sekä ainoa nykyään pääsarjassa pelaava, kun naapuri seura Chievo kyntää alasarjoissa. Matsi pelataan Veronan Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodilla.
    Hellas on kohtuu perinteinen Serie A -seura. Nyt menossa on 31. kausi ja mukaan mahtuu myös yksi scudetto kaudelta 1984–1985. 
    Hellaksen historiaan mahtuu myös lisäksi milanistieille ikävämpää historiaa kaudelta 1973. Silloin Milan johti sarjaa pisteellä ja hävisi Hellakselle Bengodilla 5-3 sekä menetti scudetton Juvelle. Kuulostaako tutulta..

    No ei mennä asioiden edelle, vaan palataan sarjataulukkoon. Kuten pake pisti raporttia, niin Inter meni eilen sarjakärkeen voitettuaan Empolin. Nyt Milanilla on mahdollisuus vastata tuleen tulella ja ottaa takaisin sarjapaikka. Interillä on kärjessä 36:n pelin jälkeen 78 pistettä ja Milanilla 35:n pelin jälkeen 77 pistettä.
    Hellas on sijalla 9. ja on kerännyt 35:sta pelistä 52 pistettä.
    Milan on myös Hellastaihan hiukan parempi vireessä. Milanilla on 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 3 voittoa ja 2 tasuria. Hellaksen saldo 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 3 voittoa, 1 tasuri ja 1 tappio.
     
    Piolin kommentit:
    Fans
    "Playing another crucial match with so many AC Milan fans in the stands will be great for all of us. Their presence is giving us great energy and enthusiasm, which are qualities we want to display out on the pitch against Verona."
    The team’s work this week
    "The lads have been highly attentive and motivated. We’ll be up against a high-quality team who are capable of causing us problems, but these matches can help you gain awareness. We mustn’t just prove that we’re good, we need to show that we’re better."
    The team
    "The lads are switched on and motivated, and they’re handling the pressure well. In this respect, I can see that the group has grown. We need to carry on going down this path, one which has allowed us to climb higher and higher. Now, we’re seven points away from achieving something extraordinary. We’ll need to play like an AC Milan side should."
    Verona
    "Verona will do everything to try to beat us. We’re a prestigious rival, but we’ll also do everything to win. We’ll need to watch out for their attacking players, who possess quality. We’ll have to perform well in defence."
    The match
    "Our way of playing makes us a balanced team. We want to dominate the match and be the more dangerous side. Games are long and difficult, as proven by the match between Real Madrid and Manchester City, where the former won thanks to their spirit and mentality. Ancelotti? He’s a legend and exceptional in everything."
    AC Milan’s history in Verona
    "I’m not thinking about the past. We’re starting to write our own page of history, and history is written by what you do in the present."
    Physical condition
    "My staff know exactly what I think of their work. I’m the one in charge: they make proposals and then I decide. Too many times, a lot of importance is placed on the physical side of things and not so much on the tactical-technical aspect. We’ve never had peaks in either direction."
    Individuals
    "Whether we alternate Leão and Rebić on the flanks depends on the game and the situation we’re in; both can do well on the left or right. As for who will start between Saelemaekers and Messias, I don’t see a lot of differences between the two, even if they prefer to use different feet. Both are attacking players who also need to do their bit in defence."

    Verona on Milanin ensimmäinen kolmesta viimeisestä pelistä ja voisi sanoa ihan hyvällä omallatunnolla, että yksi mahdollinen kompastuskivi scudettojahdissa. Verona pelaa kotonaan paineetta lähinnä kunniasta. Toki Veronalla teoreettinen mahdollisuus europelipaikkaan, mutta eiköhän he itsekin tiedä sen mahdollisuuden pienuuden. Joka tapauksessa kyseeessä on hyvä joukkue ja ihan hyvässä vireessä.
    Silti Milaniin uskoo Whoscored.com, joka ehdottaa Milanin 0-2 vierasvoittoa. Freesupertips.com uskoo taas Milanin 1-2 vierasvoittoon ja Footballpredictions.com 0-1 vierasvoittoon. Itse en enää tiedä, että mihin uskoo, mutta toivoo vain sitä voittoa ja kolmea pojoo..

    Tähän liittyen itse olen ajatellut, että Interillä on leveämpi ja laadukkaampi materiaali, mutta La Gazzetta dello Sport arvioi pari päivää sitten, että asia on päinvastoin:

    Tokihan tuokin onkin arvio, mutta ei se ruoho ole välttämättä vihreäämpää Milanon toisella puolella.

    Giroud ja Leao tuhlasi yhdet tosihyvät paikat, mutta Leao korjasi myöhemmin sen virheen.
    Rebicilta ihan hyvä peli kyllä, mutta asiaa pitää katsoa kokonaisuutena: samaan aikaan tuli myös Krunic kentälle ja se antoi mahdollisuuden siirtyä hyökkäävämpään kokoonpanoon. Ja myös Krunic pelasi hyvän pelin.
    Joka tapauksessa Milan petrasi paljon avauspuoliskosta ja ansaitsi sen voiton, vaikka tiukkaa teki.

    Pelin tilastot.

    Pelissä oli taas onnistujia monta. Mm. Maignan venytti sellasen gamesaverin, että oksat pois. Maignan olisi hyvä valinta, mutta tänään sen valinnan saa Leao. Leaolla on kyky ratkoa pelejä yksinkin ja tänään nähtiin siinä ratkaisumaalissa juuri sellanen suoritus. Olihan se Fiorentinan maalivahdilta melkoinen möhläys, mutta nekin kuuluu peliin ja Leao käytti sen hyväksi.

    SempreMilanin arviot.


    Piolin kommentit:
    “The team played well, fought hard against a side that created problems for us. Fiorentina were dangerous, but we have taken another step forward for us and our fantastic fans.” 
    “The goal felt like a weight off our shoulders. We again had so many chances, the right mentality and continued working as a team. There is always going to be tension in matches like this, as we are challenging for a very important target, so we all feel that energy and it becomes more difficult to sustain the longer it goes on.
    “Despite the fact these players are very young, they are doing so well and maintain that confidence, the belief in themselves and ability to suffer under pressure.”
    The coach insists he does not deserve all the credit for the vastly improved mentality at Milan over the last two seasons.
    “I think it starts from the top and filters down, because those who run the club have faith and support our directors, the directors believe in my work, so consequently I believe in my work and my players. We are all positive even during difficult moments and we never stop believing in our capabilities.
    “Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are so supportive, they are always close by at the training ground. We all know how things go in football, the players feel if the coach trusts them and the same goes for the coach with directors.”
    The Scudetto remains their target, although Pioli again tries to calm the tension around the squad.
    “We are five points better off than at this stage last season, so improving on that was our objective, to get more points than last year. Then we’ll see where we are, one game at a time.”
    After the last-gasp win over Lazio, this was another match where Milan left it late to snatch victory.
    “I think it’s also because we have players who come off the bench and are fired up, want to help the team and give their all.” 
    “I can see constant progress in my team, it’s the first time many of them have challenged for such a prestigious trophy. I hope my players and I can continue that growth process, but for some it might be the only time we’re in this position. That’s why we must give our all to the very end.
    “We have to prove ourselves on the pitch, because whoever wins will in the end have done a little bit more than the other teams.”

    Viikon päästä on retki Veronaan ja se tarkoittaa, että sinne pääsee sarhajohtajana. Todennäköisesti sen pisteen edella Interia, joka johtaa tällä hetkellä omaa peliään 0-2 Udinessa.Ei annetta se häiritä, vaan juhlitaan vielä tätä..

    Eka puolisko oli tasaista ja molempiin päätyihin oli maalipaikkoja. Milanin pitäisi olla olla huolellisempi viimeistelyssä. Jos ja kun niin käy, niin se aukaisee varmaan jotain henkisiä lukkoja pakkovoitosta.

    1. toukokuuta on baijerilaisen abbedissa Valburgin pyhimykseksi julistamisen päivä, josta nykyinen vappu tulee. Tänä vuonna se on myös Milanilla pelipäivä, jossa Milan saalistaa San Sirolla pisteitä Fiorentinasta klo 16.00 Suomen aikaa pelattavassa pelissä.
    Fiorentina on todella perinteinen pääsarjaseura. Violettiin pukeutuvalla joukkueella on menossa 84. kausi, joka 5. eniten kaikista joukkueista. La Viola on juhlinut myös 2 kertaa scudettoa (1955–1956, 1968–1969).
    Viime kaudella Fiorentina oli sarjassa 13. ja on 38:sta 40 pistettä. Tällä kaudella on mennyt huomattavasti paremmin, koska nyt 34 pelin jälkeen Violalla on 56 pistettä ja sarjasijoitus 7.
    Milanilla on 34 pelin jälkeen 74 pistettä ja on sillä sarjakärjessä. Myös vireessä Milan on hiukan parempi. Milanilla on 5 viimeisestä pelistä 3 voittoa ja 2 tasuria. Fiorentinalla on vastaavasti 5 viimeisestä pelistä 3 voittoa ja 2 tappiota.

    Piolin kommentit:
    AC Milan v Fiorentina
    "It will be a vital game, as will all of our remaining matches. The best thing for us is to just focus on our next game, as we have always done - this has been our biggest strength. Fire in our hearts and ice in our veins. We're not thinking about our last four games but just about AC Milan v Fiorentina. The boys have been focused, determined and generous throughout the week, which we need going into tomorrow's game. I didn't say anything to the team on Thursday, nor did Ibrahimović: it didn't feel right. Fiorentina are a technical, fast and aggressive time - they could cause us problems. They love to wait for the right moment to strike so we will need to control the game and make the right choices while in possession. Italiano is a great coach. I rewatched the reverse fixture; we played well but should have scored more and then we were made to pay for our individual errors.
    The praise from Paolo Maldini and the win in Rome
    "Paolo said that he is proud of this team's development. We're proud to have such talented directors as him. We deserved to win against Lazio because we believed until the end. We need to build on the goals that we scored at the Olimpico; from Leão's run in behind to Giroud's sliding finish, from Rebić's recovery to Ibra's positioning to Tonali's finish."
    The team
    "We're concentrating on doing our job well. It's not time for words, but for actions. I never say that everything will go well, we just hope it goes the way we want. I'm not bothered if people outside the team think we deserve it, the important thing is what we are doing; we've overcome various obstacles and we've never been down. We have our limits which we are trying to break and we have some assets that need to be praised. We play energetic football, which will always make it easier to win."
    The league
    "Every point is important at this stage of the season. A lot of games will be decided by individual moments and you need to make these moments swing in your favour. The objectives of a few teams have changed a few times throughout the course of the season; things change quickly. Serie A is a tough league with a lot of good teams. We need to improve our approach to games because we got it wrong ahead of the derby in the Coppa a and against Lazio. We've worked on that and we're trying hard to limit this type of error."  
    Individuals
    "Bennacer has had some problems with his ankle but he trained with the group yesterday - he's not undervalued by me because he is a complete midfielder and is very important for us. Apart from Kjær, Florenzi and Daniel Maldini, the rest of the squad is fit to play. Florenzi is almost fully recovered."

    Fiorentinan valmentajan Vincenzo Italianon kommentit: 
    On reacting 
    "We're used to forgetting good results, so of course even more the negative ones. Let's not forget we were coming from a streak of positive results. We want to return to getting points, we didn't want these two defeats. After winning at Napoli and drawing at Inter I believed we could've done more, but we need to do more if we want to end the season where I think we deserve. This team deserves to finish the season on a high."
    On AC Milan 
    "Against AC Milan we face the side that's top of the table, we must fight and try get the points. We need to trust the process, trust what we're doing, continue like this."
    On Fiorentina as a family 
    "There is unity: I had lunch with Director Barone, as well as speaking with President Commisso, he knows we've done well, despite the recent results."

    A.C. Milan - ACF Fiorentina

    Kumpikaan joukkue ei ole vielä julkaissut vielä kokoonpanoaan.

    La Gazzetta dello Sportin ennakoimat avauskokoonpanot:

    Milanilla on ”pakkovoitto”, jos aikoo pysyä scudettokisassa. Fiorentinallakin on vielä loppukaudeksi panosta, jos aikoo eurokentille. Ja miksei aikoisi. Silti Milanin pitäisi olla ennakkosuosikki kotikentän, sarjataulukon ja kaiken muun scudettohössötyksen takia. 
    Siihen uskoo Whoscored.com ja Freesupertips.com, jotka ehdottaa Milanin 2-0 kotivoittoa. Footballpredictions.com uskoo vain 1-0 kotivoittoon, mutta lupaan olla onnellinen siihenkin..

    Lähteekö Liverpoolin kärkimies? Klopp: ”Emme tule koskaan kaipaamaan pelaajaa enemmän kuin häntä”
    Liverpoolin manageri Jürgen Klopp hehkuttaa belgialaiskärki Divock Origia, joka osoitti jälleen kerran arvonsa joukkueelleen.
    Sunnuntain 2–0-voittopelissä paikallisvastustaja Evertonia vastaan vaihtomies Origi oli mukana järjestelemässä Andrew Robertsonin viimeistelemää avausmaalia ja teki itse punapaitojen toisen osuman.
    Origin nykyinen sopimus on päättymässä, ja moni on uumoillut, että tämä kausi jää hänen viimeisekseen Merseysidella. On selvää, että mies kaipaa enemmän vastuuta parhaassa peli-iässään (27).
    – Emme tule koskaan kaipaamaan pelaajaa enemmän kuin häntä, koska jos hän lähtee, hän räjäyttää potin uudessa seurassaan. Hän on maailmanluokan kärkipelaaja. Hän on legenda ja pysyy ikuisesti legendana, Klopp suitsutti pelin jälkeen.
    – Hän ei aina mahdu joukkueeseen, mikä on naurettavaa, mutta hän on aina läsnä, kun tarvitsemme häntä. Hän oli mukana molemmissa maaleissa. Ilman Divockia mikään, mitä teimme toisella puoliajalla, ei olisi tapahtunut.
    Origi on tehnyt tällä kaudella kaksi maalia Valioliigassa. Jos kaikki kilpailut huomioidaan, osumia on syntynyt kuusi.

    Aloitan oman kommenttini lainauksella:
    Milanin voittomaali sisälsi myös historiallisen tempun. Ibrahimovićista tuli kaikkien aikojen vanhin maalisyötön Serie A:ssa antanut pelaaja. Ennätys kirjataan nyt lukemiin 40 vuotta, kuusi kuukautta ja 21 päivää. Aikaisemmin ennätystä piti hallussaan Roma-legenda Francesco Totti, joka antoi viimeisen maalisyöttönsä ollessaan 40 vuoden, neljän kuukauden ja 23 päivän ikäinen.
    Ibran maalisyöttö on kyllä hieno todella hieno juttu. Olen silti eri mieltä siitä, että kannattaako sitä jatkopahvia antaa sen perusteella.
    En minä ole koskaan nähnyt, että Rebicilta puuttuisi asennetta. En ole myöskään nähnyt, että Samulta puuttuisi asennetta. Mutta molemmilta olen nähnyt silti huonoja pelejä. 
    Rebic saattaa olla hyvänä päivänä MotM, mutta kun se huono päivä tulee ja niitä tulee yllättävän paljon, niin se touhu herättää lähinnä myötähäpeää. Jos Rebic pysyisi kasassa ja pelaisi sillä hyvän päivän tasolla, niin kaveri olisi world class. Nyt näin ei ole.

    Pelin tilastot.

    MotM:in valintaa voisi olla monta perustetta ja onnistunutta pelaajaa. Tonali pelasi hyvän pelin ja teki ratkaisumaalin. Siinä on perustetta kerrakseen..

    SempreMilanin arviot.


    Piolin kommentit:
    “It’s only right to be happy and satisfied with this game and our fans, who once again proved themselves fantastic.” 
    “I am so proud of my players and if I was in their shoes, I’d be angry, as people don’t give them enough credit. For years they have been proving themselves at the highest level.
    “We will try to win all the remaining games, we might not achieve that, but we will give it our best.
    “Strangely, we started the game badly and conceded an avoidable goal, but we showed our ability to get back on track, stay in the game and keep going. Lazio caused us problems, as they are a fine team, but this was another important step forward.
    “We know it’s a tricky fixture list, all we can do is take it one game at a time and try to do the best we possibly can.”
    Tonali is more of a defensive midfielder, but he pushed forward and finished off the move from a Zlatan Ibrahimovic knockdown.
    “We moved the full-backs further forward in the second half, Tonali was meant to sit deeper, but when you feel that moment, you have to take it. I told my players to be determined, ferocious and create that moment.
    “We showed once again that we believed all the way to the end, because we felt that we could win it and created so many chances.”
    Milan always said their aim for the season was to finish in the top four and that has now been achieved with a month to spare.
    “The important thing is we are in the Champions League. This time last season, we weren’t sure if we would be in the top four, so this shows further progress.
    “There are still some steps to climb, but those are the ones that will give us the greatest satisfaction. You won’t find a squad with such a low average age in Serie A challenging for the Scudetto, but they are all captains, they put so much passion and positivity into their work, we need to enjoy it.”
    There are also veterans in the squad like Giroud and Ibrahimovic who can lead the way.
    “We are talking about a World Cup winner who has played at the highest level. He is a top level player and person, so a really smart signing.”
    While Inter face Bologna on Wednesday, Milan will play Fiorentina next weekend.
    “Fiorentina are strong, quick, intense and motivated too after their defeat to Salernitana today. I told the lads if we end the season with 86 points, that’s the most we could possibly do. It’s an unpredictable league, just look at what happened today with Napoli losing in Empoli after leading 2-0. All we can do is give our best.”
    Pioli was asked if the squad suffered a psychological blow from the 2-0 Coppa Italia semi-final defeat to Inter.
    “There was disappointment, there’s no denying it, as we know how important the derby is and we wanted to reach the Coppa Italia Final. We have always got back on our feet after a disappointment and used that energy for the next test, so it’s what we will continue to do.”

Molemmilla on sen verran monta peliä ja tiukassa Serie A-ssa ei ole kovin todennäköistä edes, että molemmat voittaa loput pelit. Voittaako toinen kaikki pelit tai möhliikö molemmat? Ja mikä on silloin tilanne? Yhtä kaikki, olemme kaikki sitä mieltä, että scudettokisa jatkuu toukokuun puolelelle. Sitä ei punamustassa kaartissa hetkeen nähty.

    Scudeton kannalta tämä kierros voi olla merkityksellinen, sillä nyt pelataan kaksi Milano vs. Rooma -matsia. Kohta Inter mitttaa As Roman kunnon ja huomenna Milan haastaa Rooman ”maalaisserkkuja” Laziota.  Milanin ja Lazion peli pelatataan huomenna sunnuntaina klo 21.45 Suomen aikaa Stadio Olimpicolla.
    Lazio on suurseura, jolla ei ole kovin ihmeellistä menestystä. Lazion on voittanut vain scudettoa (1973–1974, 1999–2000) ja niistäkin on mennyt tovi. Silti joukkue on yksi Italian suurista.
    Tälle kaudelle Lazio palkkasi tupakkamiehen reaalielämän vastineen Maurizio Sarrin tuomaan menestystä. Toistaiseksi se menestys on jäänyt vähän piippuun, tai paremminkin savukkeeseen.
    Tällä hetkellä Lazio on 7. äärimmäisen tiukassa ylemmässä keskikastissa. Lazion kerännyt 33:sta pelistä 56 pistettä. Milan on toistaiseksi sarjakärki ja on kerännyt 33:sta pelistä 71 pistettä.
    Sen sijaan vireessä ei ole suurta eroa. Milanilla on 5:stä viimeistä pelistä 3 voittoa ja 2 tasuria. Laziolla on vastaavasti 5:stä viimeistä pelistä 3 voittoa, 1 tasuri ja 1 tappio.

    Piolin kommentit:
    The Rossoneri's form
    "We're completely aware of our progress and what we're doing - it's an exciting and electrifying time. We're in the title race with five games still to play. We're focused and motivated for tomorrow's game. Every one of us has the capacity to give that bit more emotion and hunger, which can push you beyond your limits and help you reach something that seemed impossible at the start of the season. We need to have fire in our hearts and ice in our veins."
    The fans' support
    "They're the best; they've already won. They support us, they motivate us, and they drive us. Their passion gives us energy and having them turn out in force tomorrow can only give us an extra lift."
    Bennacer 100
    "Isma is improving rapidly and I think he will get even better in both phases of the game. He's working hard to always be at his best when reading the game. He's unavailable tomorrow, unfortunately, as he hasn't recovered from the knock to his ankle that he sustained in the derby." 
    The return of Ibrahimović and Rebić
    "Zlatan is the leader of this team; his hunger is insatiable. What he is doing to make himself available is incredible. He trained well yesterday and he will travel with us tomorrow, as will Rebić. There's no cause for concern with him: Ante suffers from chronic tendonitis in his knee and the issue cropped up again before the game on Tuesday but, fortunately, he only needed two days to recover and return to the group."
    On Lazio
    "Taking on a team coached by Sarri means that you're taking on a team that defends by pressing high and attacks with quality. I expect them to look to move the ball around so as to get good service into Immobile. They have a lot of attacking quality and are well-coached. We'll need to put in a big performance. By moving the ball around sharply, we can exploit the space but we will also need to be aware that they are tight at the back. What we have done previously won't; we're focusing on what will be required tomorrow evening."  
    Attacking output
    "We've scored fewer than we should have done. We always look good on the front foot but just aren't clinical enough. But we shouldn't forget that we're top - or second - of the table and are one of two teams, along with Juventus, to have picked up the most points in the girone di ritorno. We want to stay there until the end."
    Focusing on tomorrow
    Losing the derby was disappointing. We didn't come out on top in the key moments of the game. But that is an entirely different competition and that result shouldn't be a distraction over the final few matchdays. The more time goes by, the closer we are to the end and the more important each result becomes. It's not that important to understand that we are disappointed or whether we have picked ourselves up, what's important is tomorrow's game. Let's not forget the two things that a key for us: we're playing well and our performances have been good. We want to keep that up until the end of the season and win all of our games, starting tomorrow." 
    Uphill battle in the run-in
    "I think it will depend on us whether the stretch will be an uphill battle or a downhill stroll. It will depend on our approach and how we play as a team. We've overcome difficulties in the past and this should give us a lot of confidence as we go into tomorrow's game."
     
    S.S. Lazio - A.C. Milan

    Kumpikaan joukkue ei ole vielä julkaissut omaa miehistöään.

    Lazio on suurseura ja nyt Sarrin alaisuudessa pelaa myös suurseuran näköistä pallonhallintajalkapalloa. Sen pitäisi tyylin puolesta sopia paljon paremmin Milanille, joka kärkkyy nopeita vastaiskuja kuin nämä viime aikojen bussijoukkueet. Tosin Lazio on sen verran laadukas joukkue, että sen voittaminen on vaikeaa.
    Niinpä Whoscored.com ja Freesupertips.com uskoo Milanin 1-0 voittoon, mutta sen sijaan Footballpredictions.com uskoo 1-1 tasuriin. Kun katsoo Milanin tuloksia viime aikoina, niin näille arvioille on kyllä hyvät perusteet..

    Kiitoksia raporteista. Jäi taas peli näkemättä, kun nukkumatti tuli ennen sitä.
    Tässä muutama huomio:
    Kyllä se oikean laidan heikkous ollut selvää ainakin pari vuotta, mutta en silti ole varma, että juuri Berardi olisi oikea ratkaisu sinne. Edistystä toki, kun siellä nyt häärivät miehet on, mitä on. 
    Mut joo. Vaikka tässä on syytä osoittaa sormella Tomoria ja muuta puolusta, niin jos katsotaan kevättä vähän pitemmälle, niin edellisen kerran Milan on päästänyt maalin 25. päivä helmikuuta Udinesea vastaan. Niin oli selvää, että jossain vaiheessa se paukkuu omissakin. Silti näin monta oli yllätys.
    Laitetaas Theon veli Lucasin kommentti Milanin hylätyyn maaliin:

    Ja sitten vähän yleistä.


    Heekillä oli hienot pelaaja-arviot! Tässä Gazzettan:

    Ja SempreMilanin.


    Piolin kommentit:
    “We wanted to win, we didn’t achieve that, we were certainly up against a strong opponent. I don’t think the performance was worthy of a 3-0, but Inter scored at the right times.” 
    “They scored early, we had the chances to get back in, naturally going 2-1 down would’ve created a different match and given us more momentum, so that was a difficult moment.
    “When you concede three goals, it means the opposition played with more quality and we made errors. We didn’t lack for effort, intensity or chances, but it wasn’t our night. We wanted to reach the Final, but this is a great opportunity for the team to prove themselves up to the task and throw everything into the Serie A race, because we have everything it takes to go all the way.”
    The verdict on the Bennacer goal was going to cause controversy regardless, as Kalulu was offside, but perhaps not covering Samir Handanovic’s view of the shot.
    “Look at Handanovic’s reaction. He doesn’t even complain,” said Pioli after watching the replays.
    “Tell me a goalkeeper who doesn’t react after conceding if a Milan player had damaged his view. Instead, he does nothing, they only complained about a handball that wasn’t even there. Come on! Come on…”
    The refereeing expert in the studio admitted it was ‘very dubious’ and that Kalulu effectively did not cover Handanovic’s view.
    In fact, if anyone was interfering with Handanovic’s view, it was his own teammates.
    Pioli was so furious that he walked off without taking any further questions.
     
    Pelin highlightsit:
    Tämän jälkeen on enää 5 sarjapeliä jäljellä. Seuraavaksi Lazio sunnuntaina Roomassa. Ehkäpä tämä tappio tuo sopivan raivon loppukauteen.

    Golden Age Milanista got a reaction from Heek in Milan 2021-2022, Pizzaa herkkusienillä ja uusilla mausteilla   
    Spekulaatioihin kyllästynyt Zlatan Ibrahimović julkaisi pallo­taituruuttaan esittelevän videon: ”Minä päätän, milloin lopetan”
    40-vuotiaan tähtihyökkääjän sopimus AC Milanin kanssa päättyy tähän kauteen.
    RUOTSALAINEN supertähti Zlatan Ibrahimović vaikuttaa väsyneen arveluihin uransa jatkumisesta. Keskiviikkona konkarihyökkääjä julkaisi Twitter-tilillään videon, joka antaa zlatanmaisen vastauksen kevään aikana kiihtyneisiin spekulaatioihin.
    ”Minä päätän, milloin lopetan aivan kuin päätän, että keltainen pallo osuu sinuun”, Ibrahimović kirjoitti videonsa yhteyteen.
    Ibrahimović laukoo videolla neljä ensimmäistä valkoista palloa maaliin, kunnes tulee keltaisen pallon vuoro. Sen tähtihyökkääjä laukoo suoraan kohti kameran linssiä.
    40-vuotiaan Ibrahimovićin sopimus Italian Serie A:ssa pelaavan AC Milanin kanssa päättyy tähän kauteen. Arviot uran päättymisestä ovat kiihtyneet toistuvien loukkaantumisten vuoksi, ja loppuvuoden MM-kisatkin pelataan ilman Ruotsia.
    Ruotsin MM-kisatie nousi pystyyn maaliskuun lopussa Puolaa vastaan pelatussa jatkokarsinnassa. Ruotsalaislehdet Aftonbladet ja Expressen kertoivat Ibrahimovićin todenneen tuolloin, että hän jatkaa peliuraansa niin kauan kuin voi.
    IBRAHIMOVIĆ on tehnyt tällä kaudella kahdeksan maalia Serie A:ssa. Hän on päässyt erilaisten vammojen vuoksi kentälle vain 19 ottelussa. Sarjaa johtava AC Milan on pelannut 33 ottelua.
    Täydet minuutit Ibrahimović pelasi viimeksi 17. tammikuuta, jolloin Milan hävisi kotonaan Spezialle 1–2.
    Aftonbladet kertoi italialaisten lähteiden väittävän, että Ibrahimovićin seuraava osoite löytyisi Ruotsista ja Hammarbystä, jonka osaomistaja hän on.

    Golden Age Milanista got a reaction from Heek in Huhuja (AC Milan)   
    Voi tässä huhussa olla perääkin. Sen verran paljon sitä on rummutettu. Mutta on näitä vastaavia huhuja ollut ennenkin ja ne on jääneet suutareiksi. Se on selvää, että Elliotille Milanin omistaminen ei ole mikään erityinen juttu, vaan bisnestä. Kun sopiva ostaja tulee, niin Elliot luopuu seurasta saman tien.
    Kun kiinalaiset tuli Milanin omistajiksi, niin silloin oli pakko tehdä täydellinen suursiivous, kun se Setä B:n loppuajan joukkue oli niin p*ska. Sen joukkueen rakentaminen oli ensimmäinenm askel tähän nykyiseen, vaikka siitä jäljelä ole kuin Kessie eikä pian sitäkään.
    Nyt en näe, että olisi tarvetta suurelle suursiivoukselle, vaan Milanilla on hieno projekti, jossa on hyviä ja vähintääkin lupaavia pelaajia. Tarvitaan muutama täsmävahvistus ja vähän aikaa, niin tämä joukkue ottaa sen scudetton jos ei jo aiemmin. Euromenestys on toinen juttu, kun siellä on sitten niitä todellisia kroisoksia. 
    Ostaisi juu, kun Mbabbe siirtyy kesällä ilmaiseksi. Palkanmaksu onkin sitten toinen juttu..

    Huomenna Coppa jatkuu seuraavalla 2. pelillä Interiä vastaan klo 22.00 Suomen aikaa. Kun ensimmäinen 0-0 kiikareihin, niin pelissä on kaikki auki.
    Tässä on turha jaaritella kovin pitkästi. Sen sijaan voi tarkastella virettä edellisen Coppan pelin jälkeen:
    Inter:
    Inter Milan – Salernitana  5 – 0
    Liverpool - Inter Milan  0 – 1
    Torino - Inter Milan  1 – 1
    Inter Milan – Fiorentina  1 – 1

    Jos jätetään Interin UCL -voitto pois ja keskitytään sarjapeleihin, niin Interillä on 6:sta viimeisestä pelistä 4 voittoa ja 2 tasuria.

    Milan:

    Cagliari - AC Milan  0 – 1
    AC Milan – Bologna  0 – 0

    AC Milan – Genoa 2 – 0
    Elikkä Milanin 6:sta viimeisestä sarjapelistä on 4 voittoa ja 2 tasuria. Kuulostaako tutulta?

    Interin valmentajan Simone Inzaghin kommentit: 
    How’s the team doing heading into the game and what sort of match are you expecting?
    “The team is full of desire and motivation. We know how important this game is and what it means to the club and the fans. We’re off the back of three wins in a row and we’re preparing well for the match.”
    How important is tomorrow’s game in the run-in overall? How key is it to have Lautaro Martinez back among the goals?
    “In terms of choices, coaches always have doubts and so many decisions to make on a daily basis. There are two more training sessions before tomorrow’s game and I’ll try to make the right choices for tomorrow, which is so important. It’s a Coppa Italia tie, but then we get straight back to league action. We’re on track to achieve both of our targets. We’re doing very well and mustn’t forget that we also won the Italian Super Cup in January.”
    What have you learnt from the meetings with Milan so far? Do you feel Inter are the favourites?
    “We’ve had three derbies so far, two in the league and one in the Coppa Italia. We know we have to and want to win tomorrow because we want to reach the final. We know we could’ve got more [from the previous three]. We needed to be sharper to make key moments go our way, as they can be pivotal. It’s such an important game tomorrow because a place in the final is at stake.”
    What do you want to see from your team on the pitch tomorrow?
    “We know how important away goals could be, so we’ll have to be fully focused at every point in the game, knowing that we’re up against a top side. We’ll need to keep focused for the full 95 minutes and for possible extra time as well.”
    What are the difficult aspects of this game?
    “There had already been talk about the away-goal rule before the first leg, but it was too late. I think it should’ve been the same as it is in Europe, but once the decision was made, it’s only fair for it to carry on in the same way. We’ll need to be even more focused because as we didn’t score in the first leg, every moment in the game could prove to be decisive.”
    You were involved in many derbies in Rome, but it took you less time to win one of them. Is it now Simone Inzaghi the right time to celebrate in Milan as well?
    “That’s what we’re all hoping for. We’re playing at home tomorrow in front of our incredible fans, who’ve always pushed us forward. The stadium really helped us against Verona and we’ll know that tomorrow in such an important game with so much at stake.”
    Could the fact that Inter are yet to win a derby this season be a source of motivation?
    “Certainly. The three derbies have all been different. We played very well in the first two, whereas the two teams cancelled each other out in the last one, knowing that there was a second leg to come and the importance of away goals. That was a very cagey game. The team knows that and we know it’s a wonderful chance for us tomorrow, which we want to grab with both hands.”
    After beating Juventus, Inter seem to be back on track. Do you think this derby could have a positive or negative impact on the title race?
    “I think it’s crucially important and it’s effectively a final. We’ll then need to do a good job of differentiating between the different competitions. The priority right now lies with the Coppa Italia tie tomorrow and then we’ll focus on Roma. We’ll have three-and-a-half days to prepare for such a key game in our league campaign, but ever since the Spezia game on Sunday, our thoughts and motivation have revolved around tomorrow’s match.”
    When Marcelo Brozovic was injured, you tried out a few players in his position. Who do you feel is best placed to fill in for him? Have you discussed that position with the board regarding the future?
    “We know how important Brozovic is to our team. He was ruled out for some of the season and it coincided with our least impressive run of form. There were games in which Nicolo Barella, Matias Vecino, Hakan Calhanoglu and Arturo Vidal have played there. We know we have more attack-minded players as our understudies in that position, but they all gave their all when asked to play there. There’s been talk about that with the club and we’ll probably address it, but that’s not important right now as have six key weeks ahead of us and we want to perform as well as we can.”
    Could knowing that you have to win play to your advantage?
    “We know we don’t have any other options as 0-0 would take us to extra time but if it’s a score draw, we won’t be going to the final, so the team knows we need to play well to win. There’s a long way to go and we’ll need to have the best possible approach. I went through a similar experience during my time at Lazio and I know both physically and mentally, it’ll be a game that takes up so much energy.”
    Some people think Edin Dzeko and Lautaro aren’t suited to playing with each other. Do you think it’s a matter of developing their understanding?
    “I have five fit strikers at the moment and they all deserve to play, but I have to make decisions. I think they can all play well together. It’s up to me to decide who to start and who to bring on. That’s part of the job.”
    In some matches, such as against Spezia and Fiorentina, you changed both forwards at the same time. Are you pleased with your team’s response in the last game? Is that linked to the situation?
    “Choosing the forwards depends on the individual game. Dzeko and Joaquin Correa did well initially last time out. The two substitutes did just as well and both scored. There are games in which you have to make different choices. The course that a game takes can also lead you to make certain decisions.”
     
    Piolin kommentit:
    Lunch together at easter
    "We rely entirely on teamwork. The more united you are, the more willingness there is to sacrifice yourself for your teammates. We enjoyed a fantastic day together and took the opportunity to be together with our families and the Club, which always supports us."
    Injury situation
    "We’ll see about Calabria and Romagnoli today. Davide should be involved in training. Alessio hasn’t yet worked with the team, but today’s session will be decisive for him too. Gabbia had fatigue after the match against Genoa but is feeling fine and will be part of the squad tomorrow."
    Positive energy
    "From now until the end, we need to try and win all our matches. The team are very focused and motivated, and positive energy must accompany us."
    Derby
    "We know very well what we need to do in the league, and I don’t think tomorrow’s derby will be decisive in this regard. We need to try and win all our Serie A games, regardless of what happens in the Coppa Italia. All of our past experiences have allowed us to become a team with more awareness. Every single one of our matches against Inter have been difficult, and the details will make the difference tomorrow."
    Rebić’s form
    "Ante is feeling fine and possesses the qualities to be decisive, but every player needs to take to the pitch with the mentality that every ball could be the most important one."
    What kind of game will it be?
    "We’ll have to interpret it well, and the details will be decisive. During the match, there will be moments where we need to put our foot on the pedal and others where we need to slow down. Inter can be dangerous when given space, and we need to manage the ball as best we can."
    Defensive solidity
    "Not conceding is important. I’m a bit surprised because we’re a team that takes a few risks in our defending, but the whole team have grown in a significant way. Tomorrow evening, we need to reach high standards when it comes to our application, intensity and focus."
    Away goals
    "Our attitude against Inter has always been very consistent, even if it’s difficult to prevent them from creating dangerous situations. They take up positions that will force us to do a lot of running, but we have a strategy that we’ll try to implement as best we can."
    Possible selections
    "When it comes to the defensive side of things, and with Inter’s qualities in mind, I think it’s important to cover the area that Brozović operates in. Therefore, it’s more likely that either Kessie or Krunić will play there rather than Díaz. A coach is lucky when they have intelligent players like Rade, but he’s not the only one. If you pay attention in training, you know what you need to do in each role. He can play in any position and will be useful for us tomorrow night."
    Hernández and Saelemaekers
    "Theo has some great qualities but needs to try to lose the ball less when he takes it forward. Alexis at full-back isn’t a solution from the start, but it’s an option during matches."

    Inter Milan - A.C. Milan
    Kumpikaan joukkue ei ole vielä julkaissut kokoonpanoaan.

    Voiko tähän peliin olla tasaisemmat ennakkoasetelmat kuin nyt. Edellinen peli 0-0, sen jälkeen sama vire ja tunnetusti näissä ei anneta tuumaakaan veriviholliselle. Ja kun kumpikin taistelee sarjan puolella scudetosta, niin ei sitäkään vähään kumpikaan halua antaa henkistä otetta viimeisiin peleihin, vaikka on eri kilpailu.
    Niinpä ei ole yllätys, että Freesupertips.com sekä Footballpredictions.com ehdottelee 1-1 tasuria. Sanoisin, että ehkä ne kiikarit on vielä lähempänä oikeaa.

    Huomenna vietetään pitkää perjantaita, mutta sekään ei estä yleensä niin uskonnollisia italialaisia pelaamasta jalkapalloa. Milanin kohdalla se tarkoittaa sitä, että Milan sa vieraaksi Genovan jalkapallo ja krikettijoukkueen klo 22.00 Suomen aikaa San Sirolle.
    Genoa on Italian vanhin yhä toimiva jalkapalloseura ja saavuttanut 9 scudettoa (1898, 1899, 1900, 1902, 1903, 1904, 1914–15, 1922–23, 1923–24). Tämän lisäksi Genoalla on 55. kausi pääsarjassa.
    Mutta pahalta näyttää, että ensi kaudella Serie A saattaa olla Genoalla enemmänkin unelmissa. Sillä Genoa on tällä hetkellä putoamisviivan alapuolella. Genoa on kerännyt 32:sta pelistä vain 22 pistettä ja on sillä sarjan 19. Milan on toistaiseksi vielä sarjakärki ja on kerännyt 32:sta pelistä 68 pisatettä.
    Luonnollisesti myös vireessä on eroa. Milanilla on kerättynä 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 3 voittoa ja 2 tasuria. Genoalla on vastaavasti 5:stä viimeisestä pelistä 1 voitto, 2 tasuria ja 2 tappiota.

    Piolin kommentit:
    The fans’ support
    "I think they’re an extra weapon. They give us constant energy, and we must take advantage of this. It another thing we’ll need to do well until the very end."
    Genoa after Torino
    "We always play to win. When we don’t manage this, we feel disappointment, but only during the same evening after the game. Motivation then takes over the day after, and this is what’s accompanied us during the week. We’ve worked with great motivation and conviction: we know we have to give more. Genoa? Setting aside their last match, they’re a team that defends well and play a simple yet effective game. We’ve prepared in such a way that we end up having situations we can take advantage of. I think the result will mostly depend on the speed and tempo with which we produce certain pieces of play. When we make our way into the area, our timing needs to be right; we have to try to be unpredictable."
    Injury update
    "Compared to the Torino match, we’ll have Bennacer and Rebić back available. They’re doing well and could also play from the start; we’ll assess things tomorrow. Castillejo has trained during the week but hurt his ankle just a few hours ago, meaning he won’t be available tomorrow. Ibra will be out for the next ten days. We hope he’ll be back for the final stages of the season. At this stage of the campaign, Zlatan, Florenzi and Kjær are all big misses for us: they’re players who know what needs to be done at this time. However, I trust that everyone wants to give everything."
    Individuals
    "We’re still in the Scudetto race and involved in the Coppa Italia because the players have done their best. Leão will be marked tomorrow, but the important thing is to put him in the best position to get involved in one-on-one situations. Kessie? He’s feeling fine and is motivated to do well. Brahim’s condition isn’t what it was, but this is normal in a long and demanding season. He’s produced some fantastic performances, even after having Covid-19. He’s a quality player and will be important for us from now until the end. Saelemaekers in a full-back role? It’s more of a solution to try during a game than from the start."
    Ibrahimović's situation
    "Everyone has physical problems. He’s had a fair few and is now struggling with his knee. Unfortunately, this is how it’s gone. We hope he’ll be available for the last few games. His future? I’m sure he’ll make the best decision, and we’ll support him whatever he decides."
    The Rossoneri’s current form
    "The team are playing an energetic brand of football, trying to dominate games. It’s only right to believe because we’re strong and are aware of our abilities. We’re not in first place because of luck and we haven’t dropped points due to misfortune; it’s because we’ve been missing something. However, I’m sure we’ll play our cards from now until the end, all the while remaining focused and motivated."
    Masters of our destiny
    "When I say it depends on us, I’m not referring to the table but rather our performances. We’ve shown that we can win matches through our quality and by playing with a certain mentality. We’ll take stock at the end, but six games still remain. We have the qualities to pick up as many points as possible. Our season is still ongoing; it’s not the time to make conclusions. We need to remain focused until the end."
    Back to winning ways
    "When a team shuts up shop, it’s difficult for anybody, especially if you can’t break them down. With respect to our most recent fixtures, this fits mostly to the games against Bologna and Torino. We played higher up the pitch, had total territorial supremacy, more chances and more shots, but we still need to find the composure and precision to open the scoring and then kill off games in transition, which is our strength."
    The title race
    "All of the title contenders are highly motivated. In my opinion, we’re playing well but it’s only right that we make judgements based on results. I’m not too concerned with what the other teams are doing. We just need to win tomorrow’s game, and we have the quality to do so. We’ll get back to winning ways and then take stock at the end."

    A.C. Milan - Genoa C.F.C.

    Kumpikaan joukkue ei ole vielä julkaissut miehistöään.
    Mahdolliset avauskokoonpanot:
    Milan:
                                          Giroud
            Rafael Leão     Kessie (Díaz)    Messias
                  Bennacer (Kessie)     Tonali

                                    Sirigu

    Tässä on ollut viime aikoina Milanilla nihkeää ja erittäin nihkeää. Silti minä en keksi mitään muuta syytä, että Milan voisi menettää pisteitä kotona mahdollista putoamisjoukkuetta vastaan, kun Milanin ontuva pelaaminen ja Genoan yleinen vittumaisuus. 
    Joka tapauksessa Freesupertips.com ja Footballpredictions.com uskoo Milanin 2-0 kotivoittoon. Johonkin tämmöiseen on itsekin uskottava tai muuten tulee se pitkä, pidempi, pisin perjantai.
